Help us name our cats.

We just acquired two new kittens from the shelter. Problem: we are stumped as to what to name them.
Obligatory cat photo
provided by the shelter. I haven't taken any yet because they're both still hiding inside the carry case we brought them home in.
They're four months old, both female. Names we have batted around, with varying degrees of seriousness: Lucy, Wallace (after Alfred Russel Wallace), Marie Curie, Lorenz (after Ed Lorenz -- this one was not my idea), Harriet. We like scientists and "human" names. I have been informed that I am under no circumstances allowed to name them something "stupid" like Bagel and Cream Cheese. But please provide these anyway and I will sweet-talk my partner into going along with it.
